We have been committed to working alongside Indigenous leaders, communities, and organizations for nearly 30 years. By investing our time and professional skills, we aim to break down barriers such as access to education and employment in order to build an inclusive and sustainable future for all.

What will your typical day look like?

As part of Deloitte’s Talent Acquisition team, you will play a key role in assisting in the execution of Deloitte Canada’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) based on the guiding commitments under the pillars of Education, Economic Empowerment, Employment, and Inclusion.  This role will leverage sourcing skills to attract, assess and manage Indigenous candidates through the campus recruitment process for a wide range of early talent internship and co-op opportunities at Deloitte.  This position will also partner with other Indigenous professionals, both on our talent team and across the firm, to develop custom recruitment strategies and programs to increase employment opportunities for Indigenous Peoples across the firm.  


This position offers the flexibility to work remotely; however, it’s important to note that some travel may be required to fulfill job responsibilities. The extent and frequency of travel will depend on specific project needs and collaboration requirements.  

About the team

The Early Talent (Campus) Recruitment team collaborates with internal clients and across the Culture and People organization to provide strategic insight and develop a tailored recruitment strategy – driving targeted events and other programs to ensure hiring targets are met while ensuring an exceptional candidate experience. The team advises on, implements, and executes the recruiting strategy, providing full-lifecycle recruitment support. You will work alongside other Early Talent Specialists and Coordinators across the country on national large-scale programs to smaller, local targeted events. 


You will also be joining our growing Indigenous community at Deloitte – which consists of Indigenous employees (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) across Turtle Island working in several different service lines at the firm. On top of participating in and celebrating Indigenous cultures both in the workplace and individually through paid cultural days, our Indigenous community helps provide invaluable advice to the different areas of the firm on advancing reconciliation in a corporate setting.
